There has been a pub or a smithy on the site for over 400 years. The Norfolk Public Houses website lists the first licensee as William Groom in 1789. For many years the pub was called The Horseshoes or The Three Horseshoes and then in the 1970s its name changed to The John H Stracey, after the famous boxer, with whom the then landlord, had a professional relationship. Now the pub has been brought up-to-date and the name returned to The Three Horseshoes, with the aim of serving the local community and appealing to a wider public with an emphasis on good food and hospitality.
